Hello! Welcome to Fred-Talks. I thought I should tell you something about what this Newsletter is, will, and won’t be.
I have too many interests to write on one subject only. I do have a studied opinion on the material I write about, however. Some items will be oriented towards biology, some toward music, many on the environment, some on college education, and some on bureaucracy. I might include, on occasion, material on current events. I am oriented on content, and will spend little time on blog methodology.
I plan to submit a Newsletter every month or so. When you click on the “Post” button in the Header, you will see my most recent Newsletter. You can see, on the side bar, a list of previous Newsletters, and can click on them there.
I have recently published a small book on the importance of drinking water (Water). It is available in paperback and in Kindle. Look for them in Amazon, if you are interested. I second edition is in process.
I am also give a series of weekly lectures at Oregon State University’s Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport, Oregon. I currently lecture about “Potable Water” at 1:30 pm on Saturdays. I plan to talk about Ocean Warming, “Dead Zones”, and the “Garbage Patch” in the Pacific Ocean in the near future.
I also plan to give a series of lectures on Invertebrate Zoology. This series will be oriented toward volunteers at the Hatfield Marine Science Center, and any interested others.
I would be glad to answer any questions you might have, and seek suggestions on what you would like to read in these Newsletters. I will also consider receiving material from you will publish them, with your permission. My email is email@example.com .
